Diane's Native American Star Quilts

Seven Point Star

A pattern is available to make this star. See the Kits and Patterns page.

The number seven is special to the Cherokee Nation. The Cherokee tribal flag bears a seven point star, which represents the seven clans of the Cherokee-- the Bird, Wild Potato, Deer, Long Hair, Paint, Blue, and Wolf clans. The star of this quilt is made with seven colors. The border around the star may seem simple, but it contains 650 pieces of fabric.
